The Thermarest NeoAir Xlite is the lightest air mattress from Thermarest, but the weight saving has not compromised it's insulating ability. With an R-Value of 3.2 this mattress will perform easily in 3-season conditions. To achieve this Thermarest have used lighter materials that perform as well but are less durable than those used in the heavier models.
The outer fabrics have been improved and are now a soft textured fabric that provides superb next to skin comfort and are a lot quieter leading to a better nights sleep. The textured fabric also provides greater slip resistance, in other words you and your bag are less likely to slip off the mattress.
The ThermaCapture technology featured in the NeoAir Xlite is a series of baffles made from a reflective fabric which provides an almost complete barrier to radiative heat loss. Unlike the mats with which Thermarest is almost synonymous, the Neoair range is not self inflating, instead it needs to be inflated by lung or pump power leading to its great advantage, low weight.

The Thermarest NeoAir Xlite was exactly what I was looking for in a sleeping mat, it's comfortable, warm and is very light, which makes it a bonus as it rolls up into a neat small compression bag which fits perfectly into my backpack and takes up hardly any room at all, overall perfect. Already used on a couple of trips to Wales and Scotland, and can't wait to use it in Norway on my next adventure. Highly recommended.
I bought this mat a year ago after hearing so much about it, even if I was a bit concerned about it getting punctured and it being a bit noisy. I can now say: dont worry about it -its the best mat ever made! I own many mats, three different from thermarest alone and this one is the one I use all the time. The material is really tough, light and packs down to the size of a 0,5L nalgene bottle. I've never been bothered of noise when you wriggle around on it, so dont worry about what some of the reviews say. Since it doesnt contain any foam it dont self-inflate as other mats. Huffing & puffing it after a hard days walk can be a but of a struggle and leave you with a headache, so I would recommend the Thermarest pump-sack that I use. It really works like a charm and my friends are using it all the time to their other brand sleeping mats as well. I cannot praise this mat enough, you will never regret buying it!
